Of all the geat Roman Basilicas, Santa Maria has the most successful blend of different architectural styles and is one of the most richly decorated. The Cosmatesque marble floor and the Romanesque bell tower with ceramic roundels are medieval. the Renaissance is represented by its coffered ceiling and the Baroque gave the church twin domes and the imposing front and rear facades.

Not to be missed and just steps from the door of your apartment! Put a coin in the little machine to the left of the altar to see the mosaics illuminated. Have a coffee or cocktail at the Cafe di Marzio opposite the church for people watching. You can catch weddings coming out of the church in the mornings.

Santa Maria Maggiore is the largest Roman Catholic Marian church in Rome, Italy. The famous painting 'Salus Populi Romani', is the oldest Marian image in Rome. It has been a favourite of several popes and acted as a key Mariological symbol. The mosaics of the nave in Santa Maria Maggiore were the definition of impressionistic art during the time period, and it influenced many pavement mosaics across villas in Africa, Syria and Sicily during the 5th century.

The Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major (Italian: Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore), known also by other names, is the largest Roman Catholic Marian church in Rome, Italy. There are other churches in Rome dedicated to Mary, such as Santa Maria in Trastevere, Santa Maria in Aracoeli, Santa Maria sopra Minerva, but the greater size of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major justifies the adjective by which it is distinguished from the other 25.

Enorme y preciosa basílica, tanto por fuera como aún más por dentro. Está prohibido sentarse en su escalinata.
Justo al lado, hay varias paradas tanto de buses de línea como los turísticos.

Wonderful outside and inside, the church is a masterpiece for gold decoration and antique refined architecture. It’s ceiling is decorated with woodcutting pieces covered with layers of gold leaves. It is located in one of the liveliest neighborhoods of Rome both at night and day. The little narrow streets that lead to the church have many little pubs and cocktails bars that get very busy during nighttime with many locals and tourists. Walking around in Trastevere’s narrow streets makes it a nice walk for a nice evening out.
